BBC Radio 4 sitcom by Mark Evans broadcast in 30 episodes from 2007 to 2012. A spoof of Charles Dickens' novels and other well-known works, set in the Victorian world of ludicrously elaborate etiquette and unhelpful new inventions. Rollicking good fun performed with great gusto by Tom Allen, Anthony Head, Sarah Hadland, Celia Imrie, David Mitchell and others.
